I am trying to create a HACCP plan for one of our other buildings within our company.  This other building is a cold storage facility.  Normally, a HACCP plan wouldn't be required, but because their customer is requesting that they have one & become SQF certified, then they need one.  I am lost as to how to go about this.  What process category do I put in there? Do I have to have multiple HACCP plans since they store multiple types of products?  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you!

Do not forget that HACCP is a specific form of risk management. If your new building is for  cold storage, you have inherent hazards associated with the storage itself, such as expirations dates, temperature maintenance, access control, allergen management, maintenance, etc. I mean, you have to do is list all your dangers, categorize them according to their associated risk, and establish appropriate control measures. Obviously, you have to develop appropriate prerequisites

Cold storage rooms cleaned/sanitized

Nicks,

IMO, what we do in CS are loading, un-loading and storing at freezing temperature. Each of them have their own hazard risk (depend on product type/characteristic). For examples, time and temperature abuse during loading/un-loading may cause microbial growth. Allergen hazard have to be considered when multiple products are stored in the same room

Dear B.Nicks,

 

I presume by cold storage you mean -18degC or colder

 

Normally, a HACCP plan wouldn't be required, but because their customer is requesting that they have one & become SQF certified, then they need one

 

SQF certified with respect to what ? the process ? the cold store ? both ?

 

Does SQF have a standard specifically for cold storages ? i couldn't see one. (BRC does of course).

 

One wonders what yr process is ? Selling retail from CS only ?

 

Rgds / Charles.C


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Hi B.Nicks,

 

There are general controls that should be in place such as storage protocols, temperature and environment.

 

It would be useful to know the range of products if you want specific advice.

 

Regards,

 

Tony
